We all love cookies (in the real world) and hate cookies when it comes to surfing the internet. Most people turn off cookies for their phone browsers as they think that cookies can share their personal data and browsing history with third parties. As websites use cookies for tracking users and profiling them for showing ads and product recommendations, there are chances that your personal data gets leaked out too.
